Peguis First Nation Chief Glenn Hudson called on the federal and provincial governments to put jurisdictional issues aside and fund permanent flood protection for the community following this spring’s historic inundation.
For the fifth time in less than two decades, the First Nation in Manitoba’s Interlake has faced severe flooding, causing millions of dollars in damage to homes and critical infrastructure, Hudson said.
This spring’s is the worst flooding in the First Nation’s history, said a news release from Peguis First Nation and the Southern Chiefs’ Organization.
